I assume G4 will eventually air the NBC broadcast sometime after along with reruns of the special. Pretty much everyone in the US will be able to see the NBC broadcast since it's a local channel. Fortunately, my DVR can record two channels at once.
G4 is reairing the NBC special the following day. Tuesday, August 23rd. Unsure of time though but I read in an article the rebroadcast is Tuesday.
What are you guys talking about though? They are not airing at the exact same time.. they are back to back. The only thing you have to worry about is a 2-second switch between channels.

After any channel changes, my HD-PVR takes a few seconds to sync up. It also takes about 4-5 seconds to begin recording after I start it. So I like to have some padding before anything I record. This way, I can switch over to NBC, rewind the DVR about a minute, let the HD-PVR do its thing and record away.
Time: Sunday, August 14 · 9:00pm - 11:00pm Created By: Drew Drechsel More Info: Chat with Brandon Douglass, James McGrath, Alan Connealy, Ryan Stratis, and Drew Drechsel, while the new shows air on TV, get inside information and ask me questions while you watch! We will have a chat room set up and will post the link on our walls 10 mins before the show airs. Any questions?
That cliffhanger at boot camp is a joke and looks twice as wide as the real deal, which is weird because at the same time I feel they're pushing them too hard in boot camp, specifically with the punishments and the absurd warped wall.
The punishments are crazy this year, but I think the reason no one beat the warped wall at all was just because they did it after the absurdly huge cliffhanger, and the logs tired them out.
Also glad Jake Smith did replace frosti not only since I called that but also because he has much more upper body strength by the look of him beating that monstrous cliffhanger which I could not see frosti doing.
Top 15 Competitors who were there: Chris, David, Drew, James, and Ryan for a little bit.
UCH - The first 2 ledges are 2 inches, all of the others are 3 inches! Super easy he said
Warped Wall - It was 17ft high. He said the one at Sasuke is 15ft, but that includes the base which is 2 ft. So in total the warped wall in Japan is roughly 13 ft. That means this 17ft warped wall is by far the highest Warped wall ever conceived, and 2 ft higher than the one at ANW. This was confirmed by drew, james, david, etc and everyone else in the chat.
James has been watching the show for 6 years. He lost on the quad steps last time.
Brian was taught a better rope climbing technique by David and Brian K. Prior to ANW. This surely helped him.
Drew hurt his leg in a non Sasuke related incident.
Frosti hurt his back training for bootcamp.
James arm is STILL hurting from his injury in the 2nd episode.
Ryan HATES tires =p
Apparently the 2nd punishment with the tires was the WORST punishment of all.
There will be no Jump City season 2.
Drew only trained for ANW3 for 2 weeks.
James does in fact have his own car =p
James though for sure he'd be eliminated after getting that injury.
There was NO DEL TACO food this time. Chris and David both said the food was incredibly diverse and VERY VERY healthy!
James was a walk on because his video was not accepted.
I'm sure there was a lot more than I can't quite remember... but anyway, that's all. It was quite fun talking to them all. Surprisingly, james is the one I talked to the longest, and he was there for HOURS (he's even still there as of me typing this post, and the episode ended 3 hours ago lol)
